Dr. Galitski is the Chesapeake Chair Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland and Fellow at the Joint Quantum Institute there; honorary professor of physics at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia; and Editor of Annals of Physics. He holds two PhDs: in applied mathematics and quantum physics. Victor is an author of more than 150 peer-reviewed publications in quantum physics that have been cited over 10,000 times. He is also an author of Exploring Quantum Mechanics (Oxford University Press, 2013). Partly based on this book, Victor has developed and taught a massive open online course, “Exploring Quantum Physics,” which has been taken by over 100,000 students world-wide. Victor received the Simons Investigator Award, Soros Fellowship, NSF career award, and Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. His research in many-body quantum physics has been funded by the DOE, NSF, U.S. Army Research Office, IARPA, DARPA, and private foundations. Dr. Galitski is the CEO of ScienceCast, Inc.
